Next season I plan to get the 08 Giro Remedy, Smith Fuel Graphics Series, new bike tool, and a tune up as usual. I was wondering how you guys like wearing goggles. I won't use it for dj and street stuff but for going up to whistler. Does it help a lot?

Get something with a good quality lense that doesn't distort you distance peception too much. I would suggest Oakley or Adidas.

I only where mine when it is super dusty or super wet, otherwise I hate having goggles. Whistler is doesn't really help much unless it is super wet, dusty. or clouds of bugs everywhere.

well the past 3 times i went to whistler it was pretty dusty. What do you guys think of the smith fuel graphics series. They are selling for $80.00 at my lbs. Those were the ones I want.

I prefer to always wear my Oakley O-Frames when DH/FRing to keep wind out of my eyes(as well as dust/mud). It's all personal preferance whether to wear them all the time or not. Any good Moto Cross googles work so pick the ones you like.

Love my Oakley 0-frames as well. They work great for the muddy/dusty days at Whistler. Plus they are relatively cheap. Don't wear them all the time, but they are great when I do.

the 0-Frame looks sick but im diggin the fuel graphics more. But I think the o-frames might be better. And come in a colour i like. So for now I guess its o-frame vs fuel graphics series

oh yeah, is there a difference between the o-frame enduro or the normal ones? What does the enduro do differently than the normal o-frames?

I don't think there is a whole lot of difference between the two. I think the enduro has a better ventilation system among a few other minor differences. Check out the Oakley website...

I have a a pair of Oakley Crowbar MX's and totally love them. They are very comfortable and keep all the roost and mud from your front tire off your face. I only wear them when I'm out DHing, and have to say it helps hugely. You don't worry about dust and other crap getting in and around your eyes. I'm never going back to wearing no goggles

the enduro o - frames have anti fog lenses and better ventilation..
I have the enduro o-frames with a lexan lens..
I ride Dh and MX with them..

I use the Spy Magneto and Alloys. I have an 07 Giro Carbon Remedy and the fit is pretty sweet. The only problem I have is locating the chrome lenses I like. I usually have to resort to ordering them from ChainReaction.com in the UK. And the lenses are $25 vs. some other companies that charge $50.
